Up and coming screenwriter Sean Wathen first made the trades a few years back for co-writing the spec The Field, which was optioned to GG Filmz (Machine Gun Preacher). More recently, Wathen had sold two scripts – Psychology of Murder and The Lazarus Incident, both scheduled to begin production this year – to Producer Klaus von Sayn-Wittgenstein (Bear, Wolf Town).
Since the beginning of 2012, Wathen has been working with Atrocious (pictured) director Fernando Barreda Luna and Nabu Films to write Fernando’s first English language film The Dragger. The logline is being kept under wraps at the moment, but it’s said to be a “blend of traditional and ‘found’ footage” horror. Pre-Production is set to begin soon in the States. The film will be produced by Fernando’s wife Jessica Villegas.
“I also want to tell that we are developing our next horror project called “The Dragger” and we’ll begin pre-production in January of 2012,” Fernando said in a statement. “This will be my first english language film and it’s being produced by my wife Jessica Villegas. For now, all I can say is that we’re shooting in the U.S. and that it will scare the hell out of you!”
Atrocious is now on DVD, VOD and Netflix via Bloody Disgusting Selects.
